To borrow a phrase from Bill Maher; New Rule: any restaurant that has a cheese gift shop is the place for me! I recently celebrated my 30th birthday. I wanted to go back to Paris but that wasn’t really an option at this time. So I thought what would be the next best thing. I know, a French dinner party at my favorite restaurant in NYC: Artisanal Bistro!
To say the food here is good is an understatement. Sure at first glance the steak looks like any other steak; just like the Eiffel Tower in Las Vegas looks like the one in Paris. But things aren’t always as they appear. There is always something better and in this case tastier about the original. The food here is so good it leaves you breathless.
It is so good you want to scream in your companion’s faces; how delicious is this? But you should try to restrain yourselves because after all this is a classy joint.
The atmosphere and service is top notch. When planning my dinner party I have to say I was a bit of a pain. I like everything to be perfect so I emailed my event coordinator until I am sure she was sick of me. But I never received anything but the best treatment. They even surprised me and sang happy birthday to me.
I had been here before but the last time was about a year ago. Sometimes our memories play tricks on us and after all the hype we build to others, I suddenly began to panic that maybe my dream dinner wouldn’t even live up to my expectations. I need not have worried.
I was so full after our four course meal I just wanted to lay down and take a nap. Then suddenly I was worried about what I would eat the next day. I knew that it would be disappointing and I would begin to crave this meal again and again. I was right.
I am so happy I choose to spend my special day and meal at Artisanal. There really is no comparison to this kind of quality of service and cuisine.
And, for those who attended my dinner there is no turning back.
